RB Leipzig and Croatia centre back Joško Gvardiol put in another stellar performance last night in the Champions League as he in a 3-2 win against current holders Real Madrid.
The player’s stock continues to rise as each game goes by as he continues his impressive season for Leipzig.
At only 20 years of age, the defender clearly has plenty of potential still to fulfil and may be seen as a long term replacement for Thiago Silva.
As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea had a bid turned down in August for Gvardiol but all signs now point to Potter and Boehly making a move before the World Cup begins in order to preempt any jump in his value.
Whether Chelsea will need to pay over the odds remains to be seen but it would be a gamble to let him go into the World Cup as a Leipzig player.
